• New Classifieds - Open Beta

    The New Classifieds have entered Open Beta status and are now viewable to all registered users.

    Our New Classifieds can be reached by clicking "Classifieds" in the forum toolbar or menu. Any ads posted in the New Classifieds should be considered "real ads" and must follow our updated Classifieds Terms and Rules. Ads that do not meet our updated Classifieds Terms and Rules will be deleted, and warnings, without points, will be issued. While our current Classifieds forums will remain viewable during the Open Beta period, and current ads posted there can be bumped, new ads must be posted in our New Classifieds so you can familiarize yourself with the new format. The Classifieds forums will be closed once the Open Beta period ends.

    A tutorial on how to use the New Classifieds has been created and can be found here.

How do they get them in there?

I'm posting this seperate from the B.Smithii post that I started this in, but I quote myself and Botar. I figured that we'd have a better shot at an answer if it's in a post with a heading for it.

"Your comment about being able to get him into the container brings up a question I've had bumping around in my noggin for a while - just how DO people get adult spiders wrapped up and shoved into those vials? When I recieved my adult PZB's they had been wrapped in damp papertowels and shoved into vials that were just big enough to take them so they didn't bump around. Now how the heck are you supposed to do that with, say, a T. blondi or one of the orange bitey things? Just curious."

Botar said "I'm with Gail... could a breeder or someone with experience shipping T's explain how it's done? I got a couple of T. blondis about a year ago and they were packed in there pretty tight."

I just posted a decription of how I do it in the "B. smithi" post. I'm sure there's other ways, though.
